Outcome Health has announced that it has hired Nandini Ramani, the former vice president of Engineering at Twitter.
The company announced the development on Monday, revealing that it has hired former Twitter executive Nandini Ramani who will be its first engineering officer. The position suits her considering she is the former vice president of engineering at Twitter. She will now be in charge of Outcome Health’s hardware and software efforts. The fact that Ramani just came from a prominent position means she is well equipped to handle her new role.
“There are several fantastic companies in the [health care] space, but I love Outcome Health’s mission of delivering the best health outcomes possible and its commitment to improving the quality of life for patients and the entire health care value chain,” stated Ramani during a VentureBeat interview.
The former Twitter executive is currently ranked as one of the most powerful female engineers in the world. During her time as the VP of engineering at Twitter, she led a team of more than 1,300 individuals in the tech team. She joined Twitter in 2014 but before that she was in charge of an Oracle-owned Java business worth $320 million. Ramani will report directly to Outcome COO Vivek Kundra.
Outcome Health was founded in 2006 with the aim of digitizing educational information that was previously displayed in posters and pamphlets. The company currently provides various products including digital anatomy boards that are used by physicians to explain diagnosis as well as treatment options to patients. During her interview with VentureBeat, Ramani revealed that she will be working towards growing Outcome’s engineering team in its New York and Chicago offices.
Outcome claims that it currently has 94 million patients through more than 140,000 mobile devices. It has also partnered with 230 healthcare providers. The company announced in May that it raised $500 million in its first round of funding. This is also not the first time that Outcome Health has poached Blake Chandlee, a former Facebook executive in April this year. Chandlee was given the executive vice president position of emerging businesses and industry solutions at Outcome.
